My latest purchase was a set of 2 bed side tables. I am pretty sure I paid less than $60 for both tables which is such a steal.
I was looking at a ceiling lamp at IKEA the other day and it was over $200!!! The lamp body is made out of plastic. I am not sure how their pricing model works but it doesn't make any sense to me. I still love going there though. It's truly an inspiring fun place to shop.
This was a very ignorant thought. The only experience I had with IKEA before were the jokes about IKEA furniture being for poor college students and that the products were next to impossible to put together because of the instructions were so vague.
Soooo 6 years later and 15 pieces of IKEA furniture later, I’ve found all these stereotypes about IKEA to be extraordinarily WRONG!
Everything we have bought from IKEA has been a great price, easy to put together and very sturdy quality.
I love the look of their products and well I just love everything they have. Practically our whole house from furniture, decor, kitchen gadgets to everything else is from IKEA.
I love my wooden cutting board (it was $17 anywhere else it would have been $40+)
We use a lot of IKEA hacks ideas and even made an amazing coffee bar from their kallax collection.
I also love that it’s not crazy expensive. We have 3 kids ranging from 2-14 years old and we really needed/wanted furniture that looked good but wasn’t too expensive in case one of the kids did something.
My biggest issue with IKEA is navigating the store is a chore. It's basically a maze that you have to weave through until you find yourself at checkout. Yes there are some short cuts but it's definitely not easy, especially if you are unfamiliar with the store.
They do have a two food options. One upstairs which is cafeteria style and one downstairs which is a better deal (think Sam's/Costco style: hotdogs and soft serve) but less options.
I find their concept of building your own furniture very useful and smart because it’s a great way to deliver your furniture home, with other companies you have to find a way to deliver your items and those are extra fees. Also, the Manual is brilliant is all based on pictures, this avoids translating the manual in all difference languages, and it provides a visual of your item. I do recommend it to anyone. Most of my furniture i have is from IKEA and it last a long time.
